Road trip - Best of England in 12 days?

•••
As you might know from my description in the meet the Travelettes section, I really wanted to go on a England roadtrip since ... well, ever. When my friend Luisa asked me last winter to do a trip like this with her this summer, I was jumping around like a crazy chicken. I so would! Since then, I dream of England in the brightest colours and see ourselves roc[...]

Exploring Egypt: Peace & Quiet in Ras Shaitan

•••
Travelling is fun, exciting and eye-opening. However, at times it can also be very, very exhausting. So what do you do when you're halfway through your holidays and realize you can't possibly spend another day trapped in a car that seems too small, while the weather is too hot and the journey too long? When my friends and I recently embarked on a road tri[...]

Travelettes TV: Road Trip Tales from the Grand Canyon

•••
Back in the month of May, I left Berlin to embark on a roadtrip throughut the United States. After stops in New York, Miami and New Orleans, I met my good friend Anthony in Austin and together we drove up all the way to the Grand Canyon which was a magical few days. To remember that time I was filming the trip all along and have now put some of the footage i[...]

Road Trip through Spain part 3: la fiesta de toros

•••
The last stop of our whirlwind road trip led us to a region of Spain which technically can't even be described as such: Navarra is one of Spain's autonomous communities (like the Basque Country), fully equipped with it's own parliament and government. Some of the people living in Navarra even go as far as to refuse to speak Spanish with foreigners and insist[...]

Road Trip through Spain part 2: Murcia y La Manga

•••
Day 2 of our spontaneous and utterly chaotic road trip through Spain. After spending some time in Barcelona and recuperating from the nighttime madness there via a lovely beach day in Sitges, my friends and I hit the road and drove all the way to Murcia, which is located in the southwest of Spain. It's very likely that none or very few of you will hav[...]

Road Trip through Spain part 1: Sitges

•••
Dear Travelettes, I recently discovered that there are two kinds of people to travel with. There’s the über-organized traveller that plans, books and arranges everything in advance, never fails to read the map correctly and leads you to super-secret locations that even the locals don’t know. And then there are the people who will always miss their flight,[...]

Modern pilgrimage routes

•••
What is a pilgrimage? In former times, pilgrimages were mostly inspired by religious beliefs, for example the Way of St. James to Santiago in Spain, the city of Mekka or the journey to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Modern pilgrimages do not focus on religious beliefs, but on places we know from movies or books or places where a famous person has lived or[...]

Nomad tales - leaving the road, finding a home

•••
My love for travel always involves some serious complications because, for the most part, I don't have a "home base". This means constantly moving from place to place with a a roughly outlined plan and a frustrating amount of baggage... so maybe that makes me a nomad. Have you ever felt this way? If so then you've probably experienced some unexpected trials [...]

On the road - Pt 2

•••
When Anthony and I embarked on our road trip, we left Austin pretty late, at 2 in the afternoon and were overambitious as to how much time we would need to get form A to B. Whatever time we planned on, it was always a few hours more and it sure didn't help that we were so in awe of everything we drove past. We stopped a lot at random locations so I could tak[...]
